What is a self-service software?

Self-service software allows customers to access product/ service information, find answers to their questions and solve problems without interacting with a service representative. Self-service portals may include knowledge base articles, frequently asked questions (FAQ) pages, troubleshooting guides, video tutorials, customer community forums, ticket submission and tracking, etc.

With 90% of global consumers expecting brands and organizations to offer an online portal for self-service, the customer self-service software market is expected to reach USD 18.12 billion by 2024.

Key self-service benefits for businesses

When customers are empowered to help themselves – things get better for everyone. The most forward-thinking businesses have already recognized the numerous advantages of offering self-service options to their customers.

Improved agent productivity

Self-service improves agent efficiency and productivity. Instead of spending time on handling minor, repetitive issues, agents can focus on more critical, higher-value queries.


Enhanced customer satisfaction

With round-the-clock-access to relevant information, self-service portals boost satisfaction by giving customers an easy way to find solutions whenever it’s most convenient for them.

Decreased support costs

Investing in self-service helps to cut down on operational costs as you literally support your customers even out of business hours, thus eliminating the need to hire additional service employees.

Knowledge base and FAQs

Set up a comprehensive knowledge base in 4 simple steps. Provide your customers with all the helpful information they need – getting started guides, how-to articles, troubleshooting tips, FAQs and more. Your customers can easily refer to them when it’s after your business hours and your agents are offline. Create multiple knowledge bases — each with a unique design, settings and content. If your business sells several products or you manage multiple brands, your internal knowledge bases will be only accessible by your agents.

Customer community forums

Expand your self-service offerings with a community forum which fosters interactions between your customers and increases customer engagement. Encourage your customers to help each other by answering each other’s questions, sharing their knowledge, insights, tips and best practices. Each forum entry is transformed into a ticket so your support agents can always step in and offer help if needed.

Collect feedback & suggestions

Do you know what features your customers value most and want to see in your products? Let your customers know their opinions matter – allow them to share feedback and suggestions, vote for existing suggestions, and track the progress of their implementation. Place a Feedback button anywhere on your website and customize it to fit your business style to start receiving feedback.

Submit issues & track their progress

Ensure that customers who are searching for help on their own have a smooth way of submitting help requests (if they weren’t able to find what they were looking for through the available self-service resources.) 

Resources such as the customer portal enable customers to manage their own tickets and track their progress and status.
